Given your weight I think most experts will say that 9" would be plenty of latex. Generally 12" is more important for heavier people. Ideally if you could test different configurations in person (difficult to do right now with stores often closed because of the coronavirus) then you could use that information to consider possible online sources as well. Something like 9" latex (soft/medium/firm) might be a place to start.

Also, I think you want to have the foundation to be adequate otherwise it will likely reduce both the comfort and lifespan of the mattress.

I think I have a pretty good foundation. It's practically a thick solid plywood :lol: I guess the only step left is to try it in person.

Hey amyways,

Welcome to the TMU Forum :) ! Good to have you here.

I'm just starting out and pretty overwhelmed still, but thank you for all the info, it's ultimately really helping


Thanks so much for your kinds words on the site and happy to hear you're finding it helpful. Shopping for a new mattress is an exciting adventure and can be overwhelming at times, but hopefully you'll find using the guides, articles and posts together will give you the knowledge and confidence to succeed. I like posts like yours as they a perfect for a little "TMU 101" on how to use the site for making a mattress purchase, here's a quick suggested read recap for others who may be following along…

"The Basic Functions of a Mattress" , a good read for getting to know a mattress as a sleep system.
"Mattress Shopping Guidelines" , a good resource for understanding quality and value of a mattress;
"Your Sleeping Style, Preferences and Statistics" , a guide to understanding your own unique sleeping needs;
"Five Steps to your Perfect Mattress" , a helpful overview for making site visits and testing mattresses.

And there are many, many more articles available, all located in the navigation menu or by topic in the forum site search. Feel free to ask questions and good luck on your mattress shopping journey ;) .

Thanks,
Sensei
